around policy uncertainty. there are many who believe that the uncertain environment that is prevalent in the nation's capital is adding to some of those concerns. we certainly hear from some of -- small-business customers and others who do not know what their tax rates are going to be or what areas the government may cut back on spending. it is a difficult position for people to wait in. even if they are seen profitability and growth in their business, they are trying to get by with what they haven't been rather than commit to -- with what a house rather than commit to new investments. >> you know how much of a world of participation rate is going to play in unemployment going forward? we have seen a sort of stabilization. will it hit the bottom? and have all of the we're factors played out and now it is just demographics? >> one dindane -- one thing that surprised everybody and one of the reasons we have had a lot of progress on the unemployment rate is past years we have not seen a lot of people re-enter the labour force. participation rates have been pretty much trending down. ther
has to take the lead on is the environment and catastrophic climate change. if we don't deal with that issue, who knows what the fate of the earth is going to be. who cares whether the rich pay 36% or 39%. that's not going to change the course of the country unless you have comprehensive tax reform that dealt with the fact that we are becoming a nation of inequals. like on the eve of the great depression. >> certainly i would agree with that. i would also disagree with part of it, because it has been shown that enough people do care about that wealth and equality because he did win as a not terribly popular president in a reelection. but one of the other things is the who issue of guns. i don't remember and i don't have the breadth of knowledge that you do but i don't seem to remember a -- an issue like what he is having to do now or has chosen to do now with guns being sort of gifted to him -- or to a president at the beginning of a second term. that gives him a bit of momentum that i don't remember -- momentum going into the second term that few presiden
to have buzz-in doors, that infrastructure is part of creating safe secure learning environments. and then being able to really look at the personnel that you have in your school that helps support students. from training for teachers in the classroom to the other adults who are in the classroom because there are so many adults there besides the classrooms the classroom teachers the school bus drivers, the janitors, you know, the shooting at the high school in california, it was a teacher and a campus supervisor who really talked down that student and prevented lots of further violence. that kind of training is critically important. i mean, look at in this time of crisis when states have slashed budgets and taken so many resources out of schools, some of those resources are school counsellors, school psychologists, social workers, and now, where you might have had a school counselor per school, maybe dealing with two or 300, some of the ratios now for school psychologists, for example, is one to 1,000. you can't possibly provide the kind of support
despite the fact they are working in this pernicious environment in washington. >> speaking of john boehner here, is another clip from inside obama's presidency with john boehner. >> dealing with the white house as i'm dealing with a bowl of -- like dealing with a bowl of jelge jello. they refuse to make tougher choices facing entitlement reform. that's the bottom line we are heading into the weekend with the best opportunity for preventing economic cataclysm on a global level from occurring it is now gone. there is month deal. >> it seems like barack obama and john boehner could do well to spend a couple hundred dollars and hire professional mediator. >> you know, it is probably something, as you know, much larger, much more proceed pound than that with implications, i'm now making a film about the fiscal cliff and the debt ceiling that -- that will air in about a month. you know the scary thing about it, you guys, is the idea there may be government month by month as they pass resolutions and as this -- struggle continues. both sides really hunkering down, i think, for something t
, not the rules you wish you had. so in this environment where republicans are spending hundreds of millions of dollars to try to defeat health care reform, you have to ask the question -- well, what are democrats going to do? who are progressives going to do to make sure our voices and values aren't droubed out because of the system we're in right now? >> you know what? we have to overturn citizens united. we need a constitutional amendment to do that and we need public financing of campaigns but i agree with bill. until we get there and the public has to push to get us there, we have to defeat some of the very -- this agenda that is really destroying the country and also, our democracy. it's making the voices of ordinary people, what is happening now, this undisclosed corporate money in politics is shrinking the democratic process and allowing corporations to dominate the political agenda and the voices of the american people are being diminished. >> so what are we going to do bt it? you've been very outspoken open this. you saw a ton of outside money too come into your race. i feel like w
after the fact, social services, an unsafe environment, but that does not get at the issue. they have to be creative sometimes to do that. in regards to domestic violence, absolutely. here is what we can do. forgive me for saying the obvious, ncic is a wonderful thing. anything with a serial number goes in there, like a toaster. it is not necessarily a go to database to get what we want to get at. i think you are right on. those people should go into the next system right away. what we need is funding for crisis teams. a lot of times, someone needs help and an officer rolls up at 3:00 in the morning and they are very limited in the resources available to them. if there is funding for properly trained crisis intervention people, there we go. now we have got something. now it is the mental health e r and the offices do not have to try to be creative or drive away because there is nothing they can do. was there another question? >> i wanted to add one thing. i am not an expert in mental health. i just want to say in any comprehensive package, including appropriate funding for increased a
